A rare pearl among our careful selection of the best addresses right now

La zona di Piazza del Popolo conserva nel tempo intatto il suo fascino che richiama turisti e residenti ad ammirare questo suggestivo scorcio della capitale. Un luogo anche foriero di realtà gastronomiche, tra le quali risalta il Locarno Bar, uno spazio estremamente elegante situato all’interno dell’omonimo hotel in via della Penna. Un ambiente dal sapore retrò nel quale ogni elemento contribuisce a creare una atmosfera autentica e raffinata.

Una filosofia culinaria incentrata sulla modernità e sull’innovazione che propone piatti equilibrati ed eleganti che conservano i sapori ed il ricordo della tradizione. Il risultato dà vita ad un menu eclettico nel quale poter trovare piatti come il “Raviolo ripieno di baccalà con carciofi e bottarga”, le “Costolette di agnello alle erbe” ed il “Calamaro scottato, cicoria e pane carasau”.

    It was a great experience even thought that we where late due to a strike on the metro, the staff was more than comprehensive with us and treated us like two cinema stars ????

    I ordered the steamed cod, it wasn't specified that the dish was made with salted cod, which is fine, except it hadn't been soaked correctly so it was quite salt. And since the piece was toward the tail it was also a little leathery.

    Great open-air restaurant - perfect for a casual night out with good weather. Everything was solid - the cocktails, wine, food, and service. Good short-notice find.

    Excellent food (beautiful presentation), fantastic cocktails and great service. The setting is romantic and beautiful too. My only recommendation is that they add a couple of additional fans at the patio during the hot summer.

    The food and the atmosphere was great. The service was a bit behind with drinks. We had to call the waiters yo the table for most refills. I think our waiter might have been quite new to the place.

    A friend recommended this hotel as a place to go for drinks and appetizers in the garden. We took him up on the suggestion and we went for lunch. It's a paradise in the city center. It’s one of the best quiet place so nice to visit in Rome. So nice being relaxing in this garden with a nice drink, an amazing Amatriciana and perfect service

    We enjoyed a wonderful evening dinner at the restaurant. Wonderful ambiance, service, food & mystery cocktails. Beautiful setting in a garden next to the hotel. Staff are very attentive friendly & professional. Limited but balanced options on the menu with wide variety of wines & cocktails. Highly recommend.
